Contents

Once analyzed the basics of the accounting model and cycle and the accounting treatment of the main operating activities of the company, this second course in financial accounting is intended to complete with the accounting treatment of the investing and financing activities carried out by the corporations. Accounting solutions provided by the International Financial Reporting Standards issued by the IASB are discussed in each chapter. Firstly, we study the problems related with the acquisition, use and disposal of the basic tangible and intangible infrastructure of the company and with leases. Subsequently the different types of financial assets and liabilities and other financing alternatives such as equity, subsidies and provisions are faced. Finally we deal with the accounting for income taxes. Throughout the course the effects of the above accounting treatments on the annual accounts of the company (balance sheet, income statement and cash flow statement mainly) are permanently present.

Methodology

The course is organized around two 100-minute sessions per week: a lecture and a lab session. Power point and other material used will be taken mostly from the textbook website. For each session there will be assigned readings and problems from the book. Active student involvement in the learning process is encouraged. In order to participate, students will have to be prepared. It is virtually impossible to do well in this class without devoting a considerable amount of time to reading in advance and solving homework assignments. Regular attendance and active participation are expected. Groups of 2 and 4 students will be organized for the different activities and presentations.

Six office hours will be available each week. A MiAulario web course will also be available which will contain copies of course materials (the course outline and schedule, lecture power point notes and solutions for some of the cases) and other accounting-related information. You can communicate with the lecturer and your classmates using the communication functions of the web course.

Students are expected to do different kinds of work for this course. The learning activities and the total number of hours students should devote to each task are provided in the following table:
